  • Business Card Box and Holder No. 2

    Here my second business card box and holder. I used Lace wood for this one, This was the first time I used Lace wood, it's a strange wood to cut hard to cut in some area's but really easy in others. It really looks looks good. I used 3 coats of shellac as a finish. This one should be Evelyn's I have a request for another one. I think I'll use Red Oak for that one. Any and all comments are welcome.

        Thanks Mike and Jim. If your taking about the base in the second picture it's the base and it's glued to the section above it which is the inner box. To get size right I cut it oversize put a space inside the outer box this will allow the inner box to sit above the outer box. I apply glue to the inner box, set the base on to the spacing is even all around clamp and let dry. Then I set outer box on the inner box and draw a line on the base of the lower box and cut the base to size using the line as a guide and sand it smooth.

            That's some really unique looking wood, and the reddish color is very striking -- the pattern of the wood really gives the project some "attitude". I hope Evelyn can actually have this one!

                The Hegner like some other saws have a sweet spot or not so sweet spot where they may vibrate. I know they need to have a solid footing.
                When we were younger (2005) we used to bring our saws to our club meeting in an old barn with wooden floors. The seasoned scrollers all had Hegners. The rest...

                I assume you are talking about changing the stroke length. Looking at the manual it says you can shorten it for cutting thin wood and or metal. I have never known anyone that did that. We have several Hegner owners in our club. I am not one of them.

                Has anyone replaced the eccentric on the Hegner scroll saw or made any adjustments to this part.
                I bought an used Hegner m22 and it vibrates at about 3/4 speed. Maybe I'm just over thinking this problem, last year I purchased a multi cut 3/25 inch Hegner it is a single speed and it runs like a...
